is, number 1, romney has a plan to raise taxes on the middle class, which is absolutely false. and the one report it's based on was updated to say that they actually had looked at that time again and there is no reason under their assumptions that romney would have to raise taxes on the middle class. so that's number 1. and the second is that he wants to reduce the taxes on the rich. romney, knowing the damage that all of that has done, he went out there and said, number 1, i will cut taxes across the board, particularly on the middle class, and second, he made a distinction that liberals are simply unable to understand, the distinction between lowering tax rates and lowering tax revenues. he wants to lower the rates for the rich, and for everybody else. but he says, by eliminating loopholes and deductions to which the rich have much more access than anybody else, they will broaden the base and leave the revenue neutral or increase revenue. he says, i will not allow the share of the taxes that the rich are paying to go up. that undoes $100 million worth of obama advertising in 5 mi
